this extreme storm is related to the warmer ocean temperatures. the tropical storms get their energy from the oceans and warmer oceans give it more energy. in decision the warmer atmosphere causes it to have more water vapor and that rains are heavier and floods are greater. also because sea level is rising. that means that these waves are on a higher base. we see all those are connected to global warming. yet no one is talking about that. >> cenk: so, do you think this storm in particular was made worse or intensified by the events you've been talking about, or the climate change you've been warning about? >> absolutely. the things that i mentioned the warmer ocean makes the storms stronger and makes them have more water vapor more rainfall, and heavier floods. >> cenk: do you think this will happen with greater frequency as we go forward? >> yes absolutely. well, we've shown that the temperature anomalies are shifting. there is a natural weather aggravationvariation is very large. the distribution of them is shifting toward warmer climates. so the extreme events like we saw in texas okl
important tomorrow, hurricanes are the greatest way the planet earth has of moving heat energy from one hemisphere to the other. this is the big energy transfer that the earth does. when you add a lot of energy to the environment with fossil fuel burnage and all the other ways that we're throwing off kilter that energy balance it makes sense that there would be a corresponding rice in hurricanes. >> cenk: i love that explanation. it's not just random. the climate deniers, i don't know, it's random. it's not random. it's based on the events that mark explained. kara, it seems we have a combination of two or three storms here producing the super storm. is that also something that might be related to climate change? >> it's funny that you mention that and call it a super storm a.p. called it a franken storm and cnn banned the use of the term saying that that word frankenstorm which we know because it's multiple storms coming together, they said it kind of implied this was a man made disaster and wanted to be careful about attribution. that's a point we are not discussing is attribution is
off. it's sucking warm energy off the gulfstream and coming onshore. it's the widest, as you alluded to at the top-- top, it's the widest hurricane we've seen. hurricane irene came last august. she came knocking on the door and no one was listening. hurricane sandy is in the house and neither presidential candidate can walk away from what is happening. we've got to begin to plan for what's ahead. the reaction is that it's over. milk is spilt. the climate is changing rapidly. we've got a super storm that is right in front of us. we've got the hurricane coming in off the atlantic. it's met up with a nor'easter, and then to flow this thing into epic proportion, we're missing 1.35 million square miles of ice in the arctic. so all the heat in the arctic ocean is thrown up into the atmosphere and the jet stream, as it loops south as far south as well into this hurricane and we've got ourselves a super storm. hello. it's time to get into it. >> cenk: dr. halter, let me read you a quote from rutgers situation. she writes, the situation is consistent with what i would expect to see more often
intuitive? the southern part ships the oil from outside the country. i thought we were doing that for energy independence. >> that is not true. that's b.s. we've been fed and accept. that oil is getting down to the gulf of mexico so it can be available for export. that is the thing that's been so disingenuous saying this is for energy security and independence. it is not. it's for a foreign company transcanada who is building the pipeline and the oil companies invested in it, exxon shell, et cetera to get their oil to the open market. >> do you get discouraged seeing president obama engages in that same 19 sense when he knows he approved the thing that is going to send oil to other countries not our country. romney loves it, all the washington loves it. how in the world are we going to fight back when it seems they've got all the politicians. >> we've got to get rid of citizens united states. that ruling was just the most immoral unethical thing i mean it's shocking, frankly, you know that we're allowed to put this much money into the pockets of politicians. i mean, you look at how many poli
post" that dirty energy creates dirty weather. so can you say that there is a definite causal relationship between these extraordinary climate events like sandy and human activity like burning coal or oil or gasoline for energy? >> al: yes absolutely, jennifer. the scientific community in the last few years has become much more explicit in describing this causal link. they used to say that the most it was possible to say in linking them was the extra global warming pollution made such storms more likely. we were changing the odds. it was like loading the dice. but now they're saying something different. they're saying that it's gone so far that we have now become responsible for an extra 4% of moisture in the atmosphere above the oceans in just the last 30 years. so every single storm is affected. there's more moisture. the storms are getting stronger. the stronger storms are getting more frequent. and you know, this is the second time in two years that part of manhattan has been shut down. you know that didn't use
energy, putting americans back to work, including veteran veterans rebuilding roads and bridges. those are all designed to make sure we have more rebust future that that was not that good of an answer. hey look, here are these numbers. this is why it's really important. when asked about the next four terms. the first team like the second, only 4% want that. that's a horrible number. expect major changes 62%. now, is president obama in that answer offering major changes? it doesn't sound like it. that's a big problem for it, and mitt romney is trying to capitalize on that. this is what he says on the campaign trail. >> this is a time when america faces big challenges. we have a big election. we have a president who bring big changes. i will and he won't. >> cenk: well, the president has 11 days. he has got to some how tell the american people, hey, don't worry, the next four years will be much, much better because we have great positive change on the way. i'm not sure that he can do that. it doesn't mean that he'll lose but it will help his case in the next 11 days. let me bring in my r
carter. he was president during an energy crisis that affected the entire nation. this is a reaction to a storm where yes the reasons why we can't get to the gas because there is not the electricity to make the pumps work. this is not carterresque. the way fox makes that work, carterresque, it has nothing to do with it. >> it compares romney with reagan. he's got the look, the hair, the handsomeness. if they're successful making obama a jimmy carter figure, they're not giving up, but i don't think it's working. >> let's look at romney. in the past he said he would cut funding for fema. how is that going to help a situation like this where we do need a government agency to come to the rescue when we have a natural disaster like this. of course he has changed his tune a little bit. >> cenk: i have that for you ana. let's watch during the primary debates when he was radical romney. he was totally against fema. let's watch that clip right now. >> fema is about to run out of money. some people say do it on a case by case basis. some say maybe we're learning a lesson that the state should
